In August this year (2019) Jon accepted my offer to address a multicultural class of Kaplan MBA students in the subject Project Management. It was an online class which Jon delivered while I facilitated. His content came from his property development perspective. He has a passion and great depth of knowledge in various aspects of the property industry, which was plainly evident during his lecture. Students were really engaged with Jon’s style, knowledge and current industry anecdotes. When you are as passionate as Jon, it is picked up by students and this leads to an engaged classroom. I look forward to tapping into Jon’s vast experience for future classes, if he is available and has the time between his myriad other projects. Thank you Jon, I do hope you are able to guest lecture for my students in the future. John Powrie MBA Lecturer Kaplan College, CEO, The ECO Retreat, Sunshine Coast, Qld
Dr Drane’s masterclass on dynamic dormancy in mixed use areas was very useful in helping Councils to better understand the continuously evolving trading ecologies of growing cities. The masterclass offered practical insights for how Councils can manage mixed-use zones through existing frameworks, and garner the best community outcomes from such developments.
